World That We Knew | Alice Hoffman
post image

@aeeklund and I had the pleasure of attending the Alice Hoffman book event where she spoke about her new book, The World That We Knew. I grew up watching Practical Magic, a movie based on a book that she wrote, and it was a dream to have the opportunity to talk to her. Apparently, she is working on the third book now in the #practicalmagic series and I am so excited! #alicehoffman #bookevents #bookwormlife #theworldthatweknew

Marilyncjackson Wow this is in my neck of the woods I hope I can go. 13mo
Ava_Black @Marilyncjackson I hope you can, too! It'd be great to see some friendly faces there...plus, this is an extra special event because the first time I read sections of this book in public, when it was still unedited and unpublished, was 2 years ago at 57th Street. Will be surreal to hold the actual book, not manuscript pages, and read it to actual readers. Very special. 13mo
Marilyncjackson @Ava_Black So cool! I wish I had anything I wrote published. (Other than in a literary magazine for college.) Even is I can not go I wish you the best of luck and I think it is awesome that you are doing this 😊 13mo

Went to a book signing today for the 2 newest Lil Libros books, La Vida de Selena and Cantinflas. This is my girlfriend holding up the signed books since we got them signed for her little niece. #bookevents #booksigning #childrensbooks #lillibros

darklydreaming I did not know about this book about Selena! She's been on my mind today as it is the anniversary of her death. Happy to see that she lives on. Viva Selena!! 2y

Thoroughly enjoyed seeing Katy Tur speak about this book from the well of the replica US Senate Chamber at the EMK Institute. #bookevents #booksignings #politics #imwithtur

Thrawn | Timothy Zahn
post image

It's been a long time since I posted anything, so I figured this would be a good way to dive back in. I attended a Timothy Zahn book event with @aeeklund last night. He was so nice and it was great to hear him talk about the history of all the books and about Thrawn. I was also lucky enough to meet him and have him sign my mountain of books before the event too :) #Thrawn #TimothyZahn #bookevents #signings

Went with my mom to see Jacqueline Winspear talk about her newest Maisie Dobbs novel last night! She shared lots of interesting information about the historical background of the book, as well as reading a bit & discussing the characters.

I'm not actually caught up with this series (this is book 12(!) I think?) but it's a really good historical mystery series with great characters.

Audrey Harvard Book Store? I wasn't able to make it this time but heard Winspear speak there a few years ago. I'm in the middle of the latest and it's very good. I love how time moves and how the characters grow. 3y
courtneybee @Audrey yes, Harvard Book Store! She actually talked a lot about how important it was for her that the books and characters really move through time and grow. I also love that about the series. 3y

To all of our #London Litsyans, I found this via Twitter and thought you'd definitely be interested in this event. Tickets are free, and the organizer said 1,000 have already been accounted for. @TheLondonBookworm , would you be able to spread the word to everyone on here in the general vicinity? #BookEvents

TheLondonBookworm Omg yes!! Thanks so much for pointing it out I would have totally missed this otherwise :) all signed up hopefully will find some Littens will joint me in a fun book trawl around London Town!!! 3y

Writer, musician, and sometime Carebear Kevin Meyer reads from his short story "Out of Order," about a video game the government is using as a mind control experiment. Just one of the many weird stories in this new collection I can't wait to read!
